Newcastle boss Steve Bruce told BBC Match of the Day: "I am delighted for the players. We've all had our fair share of criticism this week, maybe rightly so.
"Tonight we have hopefully quietened a few for a while anyway. We have tried to change and be more expansive. It goes up and down so quickly - that's Newcastle.
"If we can keep Allan Saint-Maximin fit he will get people off their seats, he can do things that other people can't. He is explosive. He is a goalscorer and a threat.
"I've known Phil Bardsley since he was 12 so I'm not shocked that he's had a few kicks at him."
Burnley boss Sean Dyche: "Allan Saint-Maximin? He was a handful, well done him. I'm really pleased for him.
"On a night like tonight Nick Pope should just put his foot through it, he knows that but he's a top keeper.
"We have still got four important players missing, we have a few days off now and then we will work very hard. When everyone is fit we have got a good group. It looks different when they are all back."
